banter and smoldering desire while providing a complete story in a short amount of time Reviewed by KimberleyLet me start this review off by saying that I will NOT offer reviews for each individual story because doing so will make this review far too long and onestly with this anthology consisting of 13 stories with almost 500 pages of wonderfully written novellas featuring ordinary working class beautiful vampires it would be virtually impossible to offer opinions on each one without retelling the stories And really All of them are really well written The characters dialogues and storylines are engaging These stories were always out there ready to be told I m surprised that stories featuring working class vampires aren t exploredwritten Stories of super rich vampires while lovely are done all the time Super rich and immortal aren t necessarily everyone s favorite fantasy and it s good to see that these authors came together to mix it up a littleThese are thirteen of the sweetest novellas I ve read in uite some time What tickles me the most is that these vampires got their jobs via the same employment agency called VAMPVampire Agency for Mortal Professions And for the life of me I cannot explain why that made me giggle every single time I read it These stories ave a vampire who s a Art Forms in Nature The Prints of Ernst Haeckel housekeeperpersonal assistante basically manages an author you The Vesper Service Murders have a vamp who s a phone sex worker a truck driver a crime scene analyst a copthe whole gamut of essential workers And in a way this is what these stories are an acknowledgement and salute to the essential workers who are basically keeping this country running during this pandemic Which segues nicely into my next point the proceeds from this books goes towards the Covid 19 Response FundThe characters are so very engaging They re funny smart sexy and witty What I particularly liked about these novellas is that these vamps are from different racial and ethnic backgrounds and the authors did a a pretty good job of telling their stories without being insulting Long Haul evenas an HIV positive MC that was A Promise of Fireflies heartbreaking sweet and strange all at once How to Keep and AuthorAlive was sweet and funny While all of these stories were well written those two were by far my favorite of the thirteenI will point out that these novellas don tave HEA HFNHappy for Now endings so if you like your stories to Muscovy Russia through foreign eyes 1553 1900 have nice and tidy endings you will be just a tad disappointed All of these stories are solid with well fleshed our characters so the uality is not in any way less because the endings aren t completely HEA They all end on a prettyigh note so while they Mother Earth's Beauty: Types of Air Around Us (For Early Learners) have the HFN endings many of them appear to be the beginning of the journey for these wonderful menEach of these stories told allad a common Tea with T: Let's Talk About Age Management, Eyes, Part 1 human element to them It was great to read about these vampires experiencing the emotional and financial ups and downs ins and outs the mundane the exciting andilariously Forever Young human aspects of life And that is what makes these stories glorious This book was provided for free in exchange for a fair andonest review for
